Climate Change

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. To address climate change, countries adopted the Paris Agreement in December 2015. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius.
